IBM’s Responds to the White House for Input on AI


The field of artificial intelligence is so huge, and the potential applications so numerous, that it would be folly to try to explain it all in one — no, wait, IBM just did.

So back in June, the White House published a formal request for information, or RFI, about the possibilities and risks of AI.

“The views of the American people, including stakeholders such as consumers, academic and industry researchers, private companies, and charitable foundations, are important to inform an understanding of current and future needs for AI in diverse fields,” the summary read.

This was followed by a numbered list of specific topics to be addressed, from where research should be focused to the potential for abuse or for public good.

IBM took the suggestion and ran with it: each topic is given a solid enough explanation that after reading through the whole thing, you’ll more than likely be the best-informed person in the room on it. (Depends on the room, of course.)
